Cadillac SRX Review - 2013 Cadillac SRX
By Kevin Taube - October 26 - 2:23 pm
We were looking for a late model used CTS sedan when we came across this 2013 SRX Performance model. The car was a lease return and had only 11,300 miles on it. The car is also Certified, meaning we get an extended warranty for no additional cost. The Cadillac salesman was very helpful and came down to meet our offer without making us go through annoying back and forth with a sales manager. Overall, a very good experience. The car is primarily for my wife and met her requirement for AWD and outward visibility. Having a very positive experience with the 3.6 engine in my older CTS, I was pleased to see that this car had the same motor. This motor has proven its performance and reliability for more than 10 years on tens of thousands of GM cars and trucks, including the Chevy Camaro. After more than two months, we are very pleased with the car. We enjoy the XM radio on the CUE system and the back up camera and parking assist features work flawlessly. The car even brakes automatically to prevent backing into a bush (or worse). While it does not afford an overly generous amount of space in the rear cargo area, few SUV's of this size do. The auto power lift gate opens the door well out of head bumping range and is adjustable should you prefer less of a lift height. The front seats are very supportive and appear to be made of quality materials and craftsmanship. The heated power seats will adjust to any reasonable position and provide very good support. The sun roof is very impressive, opening up directly overhead for front passengers and having a fixed roof window for those in the rear. Overall a very comfortable and solid ride car. The performance is the best part of this car. It goes fast and shifts authoritatively. The car will carve turns at speeds twice that of those posted with no noticeable body roll. Steering is taught and braking superb. Acceleration is outstanding for a two ton SUV. It should be noted that the Performance model does require that you give up that softer, quieter Cadillac ride to a noticeable degree. If that's a concern, you should consider one of their world class sedans. We are very happy with this car and would buy it again. If you're concerned about buying a Cadillac, you needn't be. Cadillac has come a long way in ten years and is making great cars. And you will have the added benefit of knowing that you are supporting an American company.
Not Quite There - 2013 Cadillac SRX

The SRX handles well, especially on highways but visibility is an issue. The rear view mirror is too small so you really need those side mirrors. Having the defensive driving add in helps. On the highway I have managed to get 24 mpg. The CUE system needs some major improvements as it is totally non-intuitive. And the HD radio can go as it just makes it difficult to hold on to a station.
SRX-DISAPOINTED - 2013 Cadillac SRX

I am very disappointed in my SRX. It is uncomfortable, visibility is poor, road noise is high, the transmission shifts rough, and the CUE system is difficult to use in traffic.

'We bought this Performance fwd model for the Mrs' daily "around town" car about six months ago. Our friends and family love its snappy looks which draws a lot of attention. It's exciting to drive and ride in. Powerful engine/transmission drive line. Sporty handling, comfortable seats and ride. Lots of room in front, but legroom in rear is tight when front seat(s) are all the way back. Beautiful, luxurious, quiet interior. The CUE system? Well, just like our iPhones it's a fun challenge, and we are conquering both. We wouldn't want to do without either.
Spare tire vs tire repair kit - 2013 Cadillac SRX
By edborne - August 9 - 6:23 am
a metal plate struck one of the rear tires. got a flat tire. when called for roadside assistance (RSA), I was asked do your car came with a donut spare tire or with a compresor repair kit? To my surprise, it came with the C-repair kit -( It was a nightmare!!! RSA was no helpful, a tow truck was going to take 1.5 to show up,...4hrs later I went home, left the car in my work place parking overnight. How come when the dealer sell you the car does not tell you about the NO spare tire -( This is ridiculous!!! I am so disappointed that a so expensive luxury car does not come with a spare tire. Today the dealer is going to hear me... sorry, I am really upsep -(
SRX-Premium Edition - 2013 Cadillac SRX
By viniadf - July 16 - 9:58 am
We have a 2013 Cadillac SRX Premium Edition, FWD. I purchased this vehicle for my wife, but to be honest about it, I love it too!!! We have 1000 miles on the vehicle as I write this review, thus this will only include our initial impressions. Overall I would rate the vehicle a 10+ on features and styling. I would rate it at 6-7 regarding fuel economy. I give it a 9 on handling.
Cadillac mid size suv - 2013 Cadillac SRX
By colby_butler - July 13 - 11:34 pm
I had this vehicle for about 2k miles. I found the steering heavy at slow speeds probably based on the all wheel drive system. Brake pedal is a bit heavy although that may be because this model is quite heavy. Weighting in just under 6k. Despise small flaws this luxury model SRX comes with lots of toys. Heated steering wheel and seats. On star and XM radio. Backup camera and both rear and front parking sensors. The front parking sensors comes equipped with an on off setting as well. This model can be completely keyless. The doors has sensor touch on the all doors allowing access into the vehicle with the key fob in pocket. Keyless start and automatic rear lift gate.

We went to the dealer in Orlando Fl after we had some figures from edmunds and other dealers. This being our third cadillac we qualified for the $1000. loyalty rebate. We received an excellent price out the door with our trade-in so there was not any hassles or game playing.
Absolute Delight - 2013 Cadillac SRX
By ptownsteve - February 21 - 11:02 am
Turned in our 2010 SRX at lease termination last month in exchange for a 2013 and am delighted with the new 2013 version. While I liked the 2010 it had several shortcomings including the engine and a lack of some features. The 2013 has addressed all these concerns and more. The engine is superb, smooth and powerful and there are lots of additional features which I love including a heated steering wheel, and many more. And, the new CUE system is awesome. There is absolutely no shortcoming I can find, only complete satisfaction. Highly recommended.
